Manchester United defender Phil Jones believes now is the time to crank up the pressure on Barclays Premier League leaders Manchester City.

United have the opportunity to close the gap at the top to two points with a win over Newcastle on Saturday before Roberto Mancini's men face Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

"City have done fantastically this season," Jones said. "I am not taking anything away from them. But they do have some tough games coming up. I don't care how good you are, teams can be put under pressure. This is a difficult league to be in."
